Leadership and Management

Leadership and Management

CYWK 2003

Students examine the fundamentals of leadership, supervision, and management from a community based, agency centred, and client-focused perspective. Emphasis is placed on leadership as this relates to client case management, program management and implementation, organizational needs, interagency relationships, collaboration, and conflict and crisis resolution. Various leadership styles and collaborative approaches are explored, with emphasis placed on leading without authority. Students will examine how to increase capacity in children, youth, families and staff to seek out and make use of organizational skills and resources and relevant services to provide a person centered milieu. Students learn to identify and make referrals to appropriate resources to fulfill goals of the service or plan of care. Written, verbal and interpersonal communication skills, including professional writing and case documentation, are practiced.
